Thank goodness we are starting out with an easy question! Hands down, the best book so far in 2017 was A List of Cages. That book played my emotions like a fiddle!
BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2017
BEST SEQUEL YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2017
Yay! Another easy question! This one goes to Queen of Destruction and A Bond of Blood and Fire.
NEW RELEASE YOU HAVEN’T READ YET, BUT WANT TO
This question is such a teaser! I want to read Strange the Dreamer and it is sitting right on my desk looking at me! ACK ACK ACK!!!! I seriously need more hours in the day.
MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR
Oh I have been doing such a bad job keeping up to date with the up and coming books. The biggest reason for that is that my TBR is so freaking long already! OY! Anyway, I can't wait for A Poison Dark and Drowning.
Growth and Change are Highly Overrated has been the biggest surprise so far. I hated the main character, but I felt like this book had the most important theme of all of the books I've read this year.
FAVORITE NEW AUTHOR
Calling Christopher Hansen and J. R. Fehr! I am so in love with their The Magician's Workshop books and cannot wait to share them with my students!
FAVORITE NEW CRUSH
Oh dear, don't let my man see this one....I'm going to have to go with Damon from A Kingdom Forgotten and Jorah from Queen of Destruction.
FAVORITE NEW CHARACTERS
Everyone from Ahe'ey by Jamie Le Fay! I fell so in love with everyone that it was hard to leave when the novel ended.
BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY
Without spoiling the end, I will just say that there is a part in A Bond of Blood and Fire that had me weeping so hard that my man actually had to console me. And then, I was so freaking mad at Karen Tomlinson for what she did to my emotions that I had to start bawling again. Ms. Tomlinson, I'm not going to be sure if I forgive you or not until the next book comes out. :P
A BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY
It Started with Goodbye was a terrifically enchanting read! My emotions didn't stand a chance and my heart was pounding by the end. Thank you Christina June!
MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU’VE BOUGHT SO FAR THIS YEAR
Caraval has been on my TBR forever! It's still there, but at least I own a copy now!
